Golden Boys - Dirty Fingernails lp (12XU)

$13.99

ERIC SAYS: ALBUM OF THE YEAR!

Austin's long running "bath band" GOLDEN BOYS featuring Nay Nay, or Nene! Also MATT H. And Wes Coleman, too! Brian! He's here! It's ridiculous!

What a band! Released on Gerard Cosloy's 12XU Records. 5th album!



++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

12XU says:
a NY journalist some years ago suggested an unkempt Minneapolis band --- can't remember their name, the Replaceables? The Lunchables? --- was "the CCR / MC5 hybrid we've all been waiting for".

It was an interesting statement, but with hindsight, it's pretty confusing. I've heard Elliot Easton's work with CCR, and while technically a-ok, I'm not sure it's really a seminal influence, either. Did I mention I'm having some longterm memory loss issues?

Anyhow, back to the matter at hand. The long-awaited 5th album by The Golden Boys (Austin, TX) and the first since 2009's Mercury Music Prize-winning 'Electric Wolfman' is their greatest to date and perhaps the first of their full-lengths to accurately transfer the multi-dimensional insanity of their live shows to a home/car/jogging format. Skillfully documented by engineer Mike Vasquez (whose hands are all over The Flesh Lights' recent 'Muscle Pop'), 'Dirty Fingernails' is the rock'n'roll album for persons who long ago gave up on that sort of thing (or conversely, for the few of you that still give a shit -- take your pick)
